Melissa Steel and Karen Harding will co-headline the first ever, and previously reported, Official Charts students’ union club tour, it has been announced. The first show will take place at Teesside University in Middlesbrough on 6 Nov. Also on the bill will be WSTRN, whose approved single ‘In2’ will be released the same day.

The Official Charts Company’s move into live events is being bankrolled by clothing retailer New Look, a brand partnership that coincides with the appointment of new business development guy Richard Staplehurst at the chart-making outfit.

He says: “This partnership with New Look is a fantastic and exciting example of things to come for I’m looking forward to growing up brand partnership opportunities for Official Charts and working with advertisers who are looking to reach influential and engaged culture buffs, while aligning themselves with the trusted authority in the music space”.

Sounds super fun. Party!

The full dates for the OCC tour are:

6 Nov: Middlesbrough, Teesside University
13 Nov: Guildford, University Of Surrey
20 Nov: Loughborough University
27 Nov: Keele University
4 Dec: Hatfield, University Of Hertfordshire
